A student has appeared in court after being secretly filmed by her roommates spitting on and spraying glass cleaner over their food.
The video shows Hayley King allegedly spitting in multiple containers of food stored in a refrigerator in the off-campus house she shared with two other female students from the University of South Carolina.
Columbia Police arrested the 22-year-old for unlawful, malicious tampering with human drug product or food, which could carry a jail sentence of up to 20 years.
WISTV claimed that King and her two roommates had “multiple altercations” in the weeks leading up to the incident.
The women said they wanted King to move out but she refused to leave.
Afraid that King would do something in retaliation, they set up hidden cameras inside the home.
Video recorded on the morning of February 4 shows King spitting into multiple containers and spraying Windex on food.
One of the roommates told police that she ate the food that had Windex and spit in it.
King is said to have confessed. She was released a day after her arrest on a $5,000 (£3,300) personal bond.
Her next court appearance is due later today.
